Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910
Advantages: Great device packed with loads of extras.
Disadvantages: Video calling not as high as video calling.
The Logitech HD pro C910 webcam, it's been a while since I owned a webcam that wasn't on a laptop so I thought I would give one a try as I have to Skype regular with people from all over. I picked this up straight from the Logitech site for a nice price of £54.99, this was an offer price and I'm not sure how long that it's going to last but the regular price is around £80 or so I believe.
This was delivered within 2 days so I can't really fault the delivery service there, it was nicely packaged and really secure within the box to protect that expensive lens I paid for. Also in the box was the disc with all the software, but I would highly recommend ignoring this disc and installing the software straight from the Logitech website. This is to ensure that you have all of the up to date software and drivers, here are the general requirements you need to use this webcam.
* Windows XP or higher.
* Mac OS X 10.5 or higher.
* 1GHz CPU.
* 512MB RAM or more
* 200MB hard drive space.
* Internet connection.
* USB 2.0 Port.
This is really basic stuff and I wouldn't worry about having this on a computer as its near impossible not to, what I noticed in the manual as well was to video call at 720p you need.
* 2.4GHz dual core CPU.
* 2GB RAM.
* 1Mbps upload speed internet connection.
* 1280 x 720 screen resolution.
These extra things are also basic stuff apart from the internet connection which you will have to check with your service provider if you are unsure about what you are getting. The boring stuff aside let's take a look at the webcam, first things first I really love the look of this product the webcam has a hinge like stand to allow you to adjust this how you want it. This hinge feels great and really sturdy, not like you would snap it accidently at all. To add to this the wire is 1.5 meters long which is more than enough, but if you find yourself needing more you can always use a USB extender which can be picked up for a couple of quid.
This webcam can record at full 1080p which serves really nicely if you intend to do any recording; this will serve me well when I start my video reviews in the future. You can only do video calling at 720p so not quite as good as video capture but this is still really good, I used this during Skype and I really can't fault this webcam. Its miles better than anything in a laptop and I honestly don't see the need to ever upgrade this product unless they invent like a 3D webcam, (not a bad idea). To add to the recording you can also take still images using the high quality lens which is up to 10 megapixels.
Logitech have added fluid crystal technology into this product which is a feature which provides you with much smoother video, sharper pictures, richer colours and clearer sound. This is a really nice feature and I'm sure is like 80% of what makes the recording brilliant. Also implemented into this webcam are dual stereo microphones which are designed to take away the tinny robot voice that you can sometimes get when talking to people online, this is just superb I have now replaced my headset microphone in favour of this one when talking to people online.
The software that you get with this product comes with features that I haven't really had chance to play around with much yet but here are the things that I know you can do.
* One click uploads to Facebook and YouTube.
* Face-recognition login.
* Free video editing software.
I have uploaded to Facebook and it was really simple and easy and I imagine it's just the same for uploading to YouTube. The face-recognition login software I haven't used because I am the only person that uses my computer so I don't really use login software's, however I know my friend uses it and he was singing its praises. Personally I think a lot could go wrong there but I could be wrong, technology can do wondrous things and this is just the beginning with more secure ways of logging into things. Again I've not used the video editing software because I don't do much of that but I'm sure this will perform at least the basic functions and more. Knowing Logitech I'm sure the software will work great and edit videos really easily and simply.
Overall I am really happy with this product and I would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a new webcam, or even a video recorder or home camera or even microphone. This is just a great little product that has so much packed into it, this is a nice addition to my computer system and I'm sure I'll be using it for years to come.
Summary: Logitech webcam, this is an extremely great product.
